"Always in the safest hands"
When we wanted to hand an editorial project over to someone and let them lead the way, we called Stephanie. With her rare of mix of creative, copywriting and journalistic skills, nothing fazed her and everything came back as a high quality product, on time, and to brief. With Stephanie, the project was always in the safest hands.
